Kristin has over 12 years of experience working in the B2B and pharmaceutical sales industries. She has worked in a variety of roles ranging from sales training to leadership development and relationship management.
She founded KIBCU in 2012 with her husband after being disappointed with the amount of pollution she noticed on local beaches here in QAC. Kristin considers herself the "trash lady" here in our community, and fully supports the reduction of single-use plastics and other harmful debris in our environment.
Jon helped Kristin bring KIBCU to life by encouraging her to make us a
non-profit organization, and helps with everything and anything. Jon worked for UPS as a Senior Sales Executive for 18 years and was a National Sales Director for a leading national mechanical contractor. He also has been playing music since he was a teenager, and is currently in the band "The OddEven" touring all over the US.
With over 20+ years of sales management and training experience, Jon brings a lot of business development knowledge to our growing, grassroots organization.
